The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Nami A fairly easy lane for Janna in terms of trading. In lane you should focus on blocking Nami's trade attempts with your Eye of the Storm (E) and dodge her Aqua Prison (Q).

Introduction

Hi! I'm a challenger player on the Europe Nordic & East server and I've come today to share some wisdom about the icecold lady of the bottom lane, Janna!

Janna - the girl who peeled every fruit


You synergize well with:




The most deadly duo

Your "Counters"




Janna is a disengage focused support champion and she fits almost every team comp. You should pick her when you need to play safe or peel for priority targets.

The rune page I find myself using most often on Janna is the one inspired by Fnatic's YellowStaR. 9 x Greater Mark of Armor, 9 x [greater glyph of ability power]], 3 x Greater Seal of Scaling Health, 6 x Greater Seal of Health and 3 x Greater Quintessence of Ability Power.

Pretty standard support mastery page taking all the key points in utility and 9 in defence. Inspiration could be situational in competitive play if you decide to laneswap.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
[+] Good laning and trade potential
[+] Disengage
[+] Peel for priority targets
Cons:
[-] Mana hungry (one of the reasons you build mikael's)
[-] Pretty long cooldowns early on
[-] Squishy and immobile


Guide Top

Laning

Laning with Janna is rather easy but if played incorrectly can lead to excessive feeding. You should coordinate trades with your adc using your shield and tornado to both negate your enemies' damage and also disrupt their movement. Avoid getting cc'd by standing far enough away from harm's way and use your tornado to disengage any engage attempts from the enemy bottom lane. For example, Janna's Howling Gale can interrupt Thresh's Death Sentence if timed correctly.

Teamfighting

Janna's strengths get highlighted very rarely and she is kind of the "silent hero" of many games. You should save your abilites for enemies' engages rather than trying to force anything. Reactionary play is key, summoners!

Here's a clip from the EU LCS Summer split where YellowStaR manages to save his allies from near certain death:

Final words

Thank you for reading the guide, friends :-) If you found it helpful or you have any questions regarding the beauty that is Janna, upvote and leave a comment!


Yours truly,

the unluckiest of all,
